On Friday morning, Texas A&M University announced that 23 suites will be added to the south end of Kyle Field. To unveil the project, Chancellor John Sharp, President M. Katherine Banks, Director of Athletics Ross Bjork and head football coach Jimbo Fisher spoke to the media.


Press Release from Texas A&M Athletics:

BRYAN-COLLEGE STATION, Texas — To strengthen Kyle Field’s position as the country’s premier college football venue, Texas A&M University officials announced Friday a construction project that will feature the addition of 23 new suites to the south end of Kyle Field.

Construction will commence following the final game of the 2022 season with suites expected to be ready for the start of the 2023 Aggie Football season.

“The best football stadium in the country is about to get even better,” Chancellor John Sharp said. “The Kyle Field project will make sure our stadium remains state-of-the-art and second to none.”

“Athletics promotes spirit and unity that connects us as an Aggie Family and to our community,” said Texas A&M University President, M. Katherine Banks. “We are excited to kickoff this project to continue to provide our fans with an excellent environment to enjoy Aggie football and support our great university.”

Gameday at Kyle Field represents one of the iconic atmospheres in college athletics, and the revenue generated each time Aggie Football takes the field in front of the 12th Man is vital to supporting every Texas A&M athletic program and student-athlete on and off the field.

“Our goal is to ensure that Kyle Field, the Home of the 12th Man, remains the pinnacle for college football stadiums,” Director of Athletics Ross Bjork said. “The mission of Texas A&M Athletics is to create opportunities through championship athletics, and we strive toward that goal by continuing to build the foundation of our department. This is a transformative time in college athletics and the addition of these suites will enhance the fan experience at Kyle Field, and the financial component from the new section will help support every student-athlete from our 20 varsity teams at Texas A&M.”

As a part of the project, the first seven rows of Kyle Field’s South Mid Bench sections 240-246 (section 239 will not be impacted) will be removed to make way for the new suites. These changes will not impact season ticket holders during the 2022 season.

Considering these developments and to honor their support of Texas A&M Athletics, the 12th Man Foundation is committed to providing several options to South Mid Bench season ticket holders impacted by this project for seats beyond the 2022 season. This will include the ability to participate in an exclusive seat selection process that will feature available seating options throughout Kyle Field.

Additional information, as well as the option to opt into the exclusive seat selection process, will be communicated this fall to impacted season ticket holders.

12th Man Foundation donors can learn more about the Kyle Field south suites and express interest in securing one of these new suite options by contacting the 12th Man Foundation.

The one things suites definitely don't do is add to the Game Day atmosphere

Surprised they aren't being added above the lower level sections 129 - 134 to match the east side suites.

These will be nice and good location. I would also recommend the change the remaining seats in those sections to the maroon armchair seats as well though I don't think that is under consideration.

I wish they would fix their ingress and egress issues instead of this. It has been 10 years and they still can't figure that out.

We are only a few hundred seats larger than LSU and Tennessee...I wonder if this will decrease our current capacity?

That sucks. Seven sections, about 13 rows per, 30 seats per row...

2730 seats (ish) gone. That'll put us under 100k.

I wonder how many "seats" they count in each suite, and if that counts in the capacity.

Capacity will remain the same, per their announcement.

Ross mentioned that seats will be added in places to keep the capacity about the same. That will be interesting to see how they do that.

The atmosphere is all ready too corporate / Pro Sports, IMO. This won't help.

Will have no impact on anyone not sitting in them. I do like field level suites, though.

I think it is 12 - 15 seats for each suite some total probably less than 400. I think the largest crowd was Ole Miss at 110K. I think we can still hit capacity numbers of over 105K depending on the game
